south asia correspondent julie mccarthy, who's reporting this story from delhi. jns julie there are tens of thousands of rapes in end yabs, there are 40,000 rape cases currently-- currently in the courts. why has this case caught the national imagination? >> wbltion i think what cause the imagination of the people was this horrendous attack on this young woman that is 23-year-old girl who was-- who is at the heart of this upheaval in india. after the shock subsided there was anger and it poured out into the streets. so you had a very graphic symbol around which people rallied. and the protests in many ways were spontaneous. they were driven by the it revolution that is india. social media played a huge role in assembling people, getting out the message, what were they doing, where were they doing it. and prot testers were demanding sus 'tis for this young woman who they said was gang raped on a moving bus that passed through police check pointses that assault was taking place. so there was dismay of the police who had long been criticized on their infectioniveness on handling violent cri
sides. joining us now from new york, julie riganski, a democratic strategist and here in washington, steven moore, a member of the "wall street journal" editorial board. sesteven, let's start with you. great to hear harry reid on this. the last time i checked the do so called proposal that a he put forth in july didn't really receive any support and only dealt with tax increases. it wasn't a comprehensive deal and didn't involve real spending cuts it was just raise tax and it went no where. for him to blame republicans, come on. >> don't forget, it has been 13 hyundais since hair arery reid even passed a budget out of the united states senate. we don't even know what the united states senators stand for in terms of the budget debate. the same thing on taxes. the house actually passed a lot of people don't know that earlier this year the house passed a bill to extend all of the bush era tax cuts for another year until resolve the issue. the senate again didn't act on that. the grave yard of the items are the united states senate. the other thing interesting harry reid said the presid
weekend. the weather channel's julie martin is at new york's laguardia airport. how bad is it right now, julie? >> reporter: right now we are getting a bit of a break, craig, but there is more to come with this system. it is just now a little bit south of the new york city metro area. i'm at laguardia, and i can tell you we've seen 50 or so cancellations as of this morning and this afternoon, but more likely to come as the snow really starts to work its way into the city this afternoon and this evening. we're looking to pick up anywhere say one to three inches in manhattan and some of the higher elevations like the hudson valley and you could be looking at anywhere from 6 to 8 inches and cities like boston are going to get socked this evening and we could see anywhere up to a foot of snow in the boston area so certainly travel in and out of logan is not going to be too keen by the time tomorrow morning rolls around if you are trying to get there for the holiday destination for the new year. here in new york it's not as big of a storm as we saw in the past week where we saw hundreds of d
. on the consumerwatch, julie watts says that people who borrowed money from a company called check and go may actually be entitled to thousands of dollars each. julie. >> reporter: that's right. refunds in this $4.3 million settlement are expected to range anywhere from $20 to $4,600 per person. but to qualify, you must have borrowed money from check and go online. now, at a press conference today san francisco city attorney dennis herrera said check and go skirted california law by preying on the most economically vulnerable and charging interest rates as high as 400%. >> they partnered with an out- of-state bank to essentially say that we are no longer subject to the limits of 36% apr that's set in california law so as part of the settlement that we have negotiated with them they have agreed to abide by california's limits. they have discontinued that relationship with the out of state bank. and they also have established this settlement fund. >> reporter: now, to qualify for a refund you must have taken out a four-month installment loan through one of three affiliated websites between november 2006
of our country this last summer. how is it, you might wonder, that we had devastating fires in july and august and into september, devastating drought, and we still haven't approved the disaster assistance? well, i would say it's 100% unacceptable. if you lost your ranch in a fire, if you lost your fencing, if you lost your livestock, and the program that would have helped, that has always been in place for disaster assistance wasn't reauthorized, then you've been stranded since june or since july or since august. and perhaps in that interim, you've lost your farm. perhaps you lost your ranch. perhaps you've mortgaged everything to try to hold on. and yet, here is the u.s. senate saying, hey, it's okay that we're not helping you now because you know what? we're going to help you in the farm bill. well, where is the farm bill? it's not on the president's desk. it isn't in route to the president's desk. it hasn't even been brought up on the floor of the u.s. house. a bipartisan group of senators in this body approved a farm bill and had the disaster relief for our ranchers and farmers
in july, early july, and today we're up 3.7% at 1928. however, look at a one--year chart of the dow comparing it to the vix. what often happens is when the vix peaks as it did in june and july, that can mark a bottom in the stock market so we're starting to move up again. i'm just saying. not trying to forecast anything and here's what happened today at the dow, sort of falling off here in the latter part of the hour but not off. off the lows of the day. down 21 points. material stocks were the strength today. up 1.5%. everybody else was either unchanged or lower. what do you make of the increased volatility or increased fear here, david darst, as we go into the end of the year? >> one of the best charts is the vix being high. it was a time to buy. in chicago that's a famous saying. when the vix is high it's time to buy. >> we high enough yet? >> not yet, not yet. got the fiscal cliff issues which you've talked about a lot here. >> yes, we have. >> jobs coming out on friday. morgan stanley looking for 185,000. basically the housing market, you had the case schiller numbers today. it
and that the speaker was offering him that you had to raise rates. obama himself, as you know, said last july, july, 2011, you can get $1.2 trillion by eliminating loopholes, which is exactly what republicans offered him. so why did he insist on the rates? he said that is what he will insist upon, and that was the ultimatum. he did that because he knew it would create a crisis among the republicans and it did. so right up until now obama has what he wanted, which was a partisan, political success. he's been less worried about the fiscal issue for two reasons. number one, he does not care about debt. he hasn't in the four years. and number two, he thinks he's a political winner if we go over the cliff. he thinks he's holding all the cards. >> all right. charles, let me agree with one point. you use the term, and i will concede that's the perfect term, ruthless skill. but, as bob woodward pointed out when he wrote this book about the grand bargain negotiations, it's not going to be looked at through this historical prism as the boehner era, this is the obama e.r.a. if the economists are right and thi
been delayed at laguardia airport now, -- we have julie martin with us. >> reporter: we are getting a break, we have seen snow and a bit of sleet, visibility is one of the big issues and we are down to about a mile or so. not the greatest situation, but one thing helping the flights and the pilots are the winds. the winds are not all that strong. so fortunately the flights have been able to come and go, but we are seeing the delays starting to mount a bit. overall here in new york and new jersey, we have seen 197 flights cancelled and hundreds of delays at the three airports but here at laguardia, not all that bad considering what we experienced a couple of days ago with the last system that came through cancelling thousands of flights and stranding hundreds of pass enerr js. so, at this point, it's a wait and see, we could get a bursts of snow coming through the tri-state area later this evening and the winds will continue to pick up. i expect travel conditions to worsen as the afternoon and night goes on. craig? >> julie martin, braving the elements, we appreciate it. thank you. s
a bill exactly like this sitting in the united states senate. harry reid passed it back in july, and republicans refused to vote on it. boehner, why don't you vote on that? the time for complaining about this deal, totally over. >> nobody can get 100% of what they want, and this is not simply a contest between parties in terms of who looks good and who doesn't. >> don't you think republicans need to be careful about pushing back on this for the good of the country? if no deal is struck this year, president obama, what does he have? well, he's got the inauguration coming up. a big platform. he's got the state of the union address coming up. a big platform. he is going to have a better chance to have the american people on his side. president obama urged all members of congress to get some perspective over the holiday weekend on this. >> everybody can cool off. everybody can drink some eggnog, have some christmas cookies, sing some christmas carols, enjoy the company of loved ones, and then i'd ask every member of congress while they're back home to think about that. think about t
in july and for december 72 points. in july, it was 82. so we're seeing the sentiment decline over the last couple of months. also, consumer confidence at the lowest it's been in five months so really seeing that kind of permeate over the last couple of months and especially goins forward and we have also seen some mild weather over the last couple of months so especially in the midwest and the northeast so i think that's going to have something to do with the fact consumers aren't spending that much. >> you would think that because thanksgiving, we think back to november, fell earlier this year. >> right. we had more time to spend. >> we had more money spending and would think that the number would be a little fluffier. >> you would think. think about what was happening in those 31 days where people supposed to spend. people were recovering from sandy. all we have been bombarded with is negative news and newtown and i think weighing on the minds of the american consumer more than we think. >> thank you. appreciate your time. >>> president obama in hawaii with his family and fiscal
strategist and a former campaign aide for president george w. bush, julie roginsky is former political adviser to new jersey senate frank lautenberg. good to see you both. >> good to see you. gregg: didi, smoot-holly was passed decades ago for the purpose of putting tariff limits on incoming products. do we need to reexplore that? >> yeah. this was, this was back in the '60s. i mean, this was ancient history. why should these workers who get paid very well also get on top of that the booty of $15-$16,000 more. for what? this is just an extra fee and extra goodies per container. what this was back in the '60s was a way to help there be more workers, it was a deal done with the unions and the ports so they wouldn't use as much equipment and so they wouldn't be as efficient so they could keep their union workers. it's outdated, and it's wrong and, really, it's terrible -- gregg: julie, what do you think? >> i think if we're talking about smoot-holly which is a different issue just raised by didi, but, yeah, i think the president will probably intervene, and he did last time on the west co

for advertising and push it forward into june and july to define him in the battleground states. other candidates, bill clinton in 1996, did the same thing. this was a real gamble. but it really paid off. the romney folks are never able to recover. the definition that the obama people had established with the dominant one in the campaign. host: this is from "the boston sunday globe." and then the piece goes on to say, looking back, to your point, the candidate never defining himself. and then overestimating his ground game. guest: on the ground game side, they were worth about their own bravado about their own organization. part of it was, i think, a genuine ignorance about what president obama had going on. the romney campaign had a triple a round game. obama campaigned out a ground game that was led the 1927 yankees. it was up against a perhaps all-time great ground game. i do not think the romney folks appreciated that. a lot of the post-mortem pieces that we have done, talking about the obama ground game -- part of it is self-serving, as it masks some of their own problems -- but still, you h
of the new york city area. weather channel's julie martin standing by at laguardia. what's the seen now, julie? >> reporter: craig, in fact, half of those cancellations have come from the new york airports and 180, jfk, laguardia and newark as of this hour. in terms of the delays we are not seeing them mount as much as we would have thought at this time and one of the reasons that snow not quite working its way into the tri-state area just yet, but we are, nonetheless, seeing low ceilings and visibility issues and certainly wet runways as a result of the storm which will continue to crank along throughout the afternoon and the evening before winding down overnight into tomorrow and really impacting cities like boston which could pick up a foot. i would expect to see major delays for you. here in new york, we are anticipating those delays to continue to climb throughout the evening. one of the good things with this storm, versus the storm earlier this week is the winds are lighter with this so it won't be as much of an aviation problem. nonetheless, if you are traveling you will want to
travel in to the week. julie martin at new york's laguardia airport. >> reporter: well, a very busy day here at the new york airports but not as busy in terms of cancelations fortunately as yesterday. in fact, system wide yesterday we saw about 1,600 flights canceled across the u.s., hundreds of them were here at the new york airports but as of today so far just about 50 or so in and out of laguardia. about the same for jfk and newark. one of the big reasons, the weather is improving. we're still seeing some low ceilings here but the rain has all but moved out of new york city and those winds which have been the big problem have died down in to the teens so that's really no issue for the pilots here. what is still an issue, though, is the fact that so many people are traveling for the holidays, trying to get home from the holidays or get to the next holiday destination for the new year and unfortunately we have another storm system that's going to be working its way in to the northeast in the next couple of days, just in time for the new yore's holiday so, in fact, we could see more str

in july that says 98% americans, income up to 240,000 would continue to get tax cuts. above that, people would may more. they made excuses, the bill wasn't right. we have the bill in the house, the bill in the senate. the bottom line is when the speaker put on the floor last week the bill that would say, okay, how about everybody up to $1 million gets a tax cut. couldn't even pass that. we're stuck. we're really stuck. >> the house gop said they put a bill forward in august. so everyone sort of covering themselves saying we got a bill. we didn't ask to go over the fiscal cliff. i'm kind of glad at 3:00 this afternoon, both sides of the house leader smip and house are meeting. do you think that there is the will to go in and say we've got to solve this. guys, we have just got to solve this. we cannot riske putting america back into a recession. consumers are feeling badly now, but were feeling okay. do your colleagues get how serious this is? we could send america to recession? >> i believe in the senate that we do. we're having a lot of very important, very good, positive conversations b

. on any given day. since july 25th, speaker boehner could have brought it to vote in the house and it would pass, but he's doing -- he has made the decision he's not going to let a vote on that. i've said here, mr. president, it's not too late for the speaker to take up the senate-passed bit, but that time is even winding down. today is thursday. he's going to get 48 hours notice to the house before they came bam, so 48 hours from the day is saturday. with just that one vote, middle-class families -- they would go up at least be $2200. some more, some less, of course. speaker boehner could call house members back today. he shouldn't have let them go, in fact. they are not here. they are not here. john boehner seems to care more about keeping his speakership than keeping the nation on temple financial footing. it's obvious what's going on around here. he's waiting until january 3rd to get reelected as speaker before he gets serious with negotiations. he has so many people over there that won't following what he wants. that's obvious from the debacle that took place last week. it
